LCCC’s student newspaper receives national acclaim

CHEYENNE, WYO. — Wingspan, Laramie County Community College's student media organization, recently received national recognition from the American Scholastic Press Association.

The ASPA honored Wingspan with a first-place award for Best Scholastic Newspaper, extending Wingspan's 30-year streak of winning either first place or first place with special merit in this contest.

Dan England serves as faculty advisor for Wingspan. During 2019-2020, the publication’s student editors were Brianna Garcia, Jenna Landry, and Tiffany Weber.

“I’m proud of our students,” England said. “They really stepped up to earn this designation, especially given the challenges of the year and the obstacles many of them faced in their daily lives.”
